IN ALL THE AFFAIRS OF OUR LIVES
12 STEPS OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS (May 17-19)
The 12 Steps Tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous has become the standard for recovery programs of every types. The 12 Steps were born out of real life experience by people who were amazed at their recovery. After a significant time of discernment, those who were experiencing their recovery had the generosity of heart to record and share their experiences with other suffering and recovering people. It is more than understandable why these Steps have formed the backbone of diverse practices of recovery. Our reflections on the Twelve Steps will explore the everyday implications of each step.
